Be beach ready with Barry M!

This has been written by Lauren Holden, a freelance journalist and huge Barry M fan!

Summer's mere weeks away and we'll soon be digging out our bikinis and passports in search of some much-needed sun.

Make sure you have everything you need for a day on the beach by following Barry M's handy guide. Here's our top handbag essentials to take you from beach to bar.

* Lip service
Keep lips soft, smooth and kissably soft in time for that beach holiday romance this summer. Smooth a generous slick of Barry M's Vitamin E and peppermint oil lip balm before applying your usual lippy. Choose from cherry or strawberry scented lip balm and finish with a quick application of Barry M's peachy pink lip paint to complement your golden tan. Pale faced beauties can opt for Barry M's Pale Pink Sparkle or Palest Lavender to set off a porcelain English rose complexion.

*Want tasty beach-ready tootsies?
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Barry M's new Ice Cream nail paints. And nothing says summer quite like ice cream! With any one of Barry M's four tasty Ice Cream nail paints, you'll have cutesy, girly hands or tootsies in no time. Choose from Strawberry, Berry, Lemon or Blueberry ice cream-inspired nail paints - yum! Barry M's lilac (Berry Ice Cream) shade has been disappearing off shop shelves faster than you can say strawberry sauce and chocolate sprinkles - it really is that delicious.

* Dazzle day or night

Instantly jazz up your daytime beach make-up with Barry M's famous Dazzle Dust. Bronzed babes can enhance their summer tans with a subtle dusting of Barry M's Burnt Orange eyeshadow combined with Marigold or Bronze. Brilliant brunettes can go all out and embrace vibrant tropical inspired shades with a summery cocktail of colours. Opt for Parrot Green, Kingfisher or Aqua Gold Dazzle Dusts for a stunning beach-ready look.

And that's it - all that's left do do now is pack those sunnies and sun cream and board the plane! Enjoy
